CARES is working to

  • Reduce families’ isolation by growing our summer day camps, where families can enjoy an autism-friendly fun experience and connect with one another
  • Increase the number of well-qualified applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers by getting grants needed to train new providers in West Virginia—and provide support to keep them here
  • Empower families by providing educational events 
  • Improve access to ABA services by continuing to show policymakers how vital that access is to children’s futures.
With autism prevalence growing to 1 in 44 children, almost everyone has a friend or family member affected by this disorder. Yet, desperately needed services are severely lacking. We want to change that.
